    O.k here is the deal

    i have a land line and the last 4 numbers are 4727 it spells gras.

    the question is... would you use 4727 or GRAS when advertising.

    i'm thinking about doing some signs.

    if it matters i live in a small buy growing town. people might be a little old fashioned around here

    why not advertise "GRASS"?

    what happens when you press an additional 7? I would assume your number would be dialed... and the last 7 would be thought as an error by the phone system, and disregarded.

    Try it out?

    The additional 7 shouldn't make a difference

    Gras is used by FDA and its means in a safe manner
    I would use a cell phone or freinds phne to call your # with an extra 7 to see if it affects it. if not
    1-(???)-???-Grass
    ------------(47277)
